تكوين 15

بَعْدَ هَذِهِ ٱلْأُمُورِ صَارَ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى أَبْرَامَ فِي ٱلرُّؤْيَا قَائِلًا: «لَا تَخَفْ يَا أَبْرَامُ. أَنَا تُرْسٌ لَكَ. أَجْرُكَ كَثِيرٌ جِدًّا». ١ 1
After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield; your reward will be very great."
فَقَالَ أَبْرَامُ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، مَاذَا تُعْطِينِي وَأَنَا مَاضٍ عَقِيمًا، وَمَالِكُ بَيْتِي هُوَ أَلِيعَازَرُ ٱلدِّمَشْقِيُّ؟» ٢ 2
Abram said, "Lord, what will you give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?"
وَقَالَ أَبْرَامُ أَيْضًا: «إِنَّكَ لَمْ تُعْطِنِي نَسْلًا، وَهُوَذَا ٱبْنُ بَيْتِي وَارِثٌ لِي». ٣ 3
Then Abram said, "Look, to me you have given no offspring, and look, one born in my house is my heir."
فَإِذَا كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَيْهِ قَائِلًا: «لَا يَرِثُكَ هَذَا، بَلِ ٱلَّذِي يَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَحْشَائِكَ هُوَ يَرِثُكَ». ٤ 4
And look, the word of the LORD came to him, saying, "This man will not be your heir, but he who will come forth out of your own body will be your heir."
ثُمَّ أَخْرَجَهُ إِلَى خَارِجٍ وَقَالَ: «ٱنْظُرْ إِلَى ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَعُدَّ ٱلنُّجُومَ إِنِ ٱسْتَطَعْتَ أَنْ تَعُدَّهَا». وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَكَذَا يَكُونُ نَسْلُكَ». ٥ 5
And he brought him outside, and said, "Look now toward the sky, and count the stars, if you are able to count them." And he said to him, "So will your descendants be."
فَآمَنَ بِٱلرَّبِّ فَحَسِبَهُ لَهُ بِرًّا. ٦ 6
And he believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.
وَقَالَ لَهُ: «أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي أَخْرَجَكَ مِنْ أُورِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ لِيُعْطِيَكَ هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ لِتَرِثَهَا». ٧ 7
And he said to him, "I am God, who brought you out of Ur Kasdim to give you this land to possess."
فَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، بِمَاذَا أَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أَرِثُهَا؟» ٨ 8
But he said, "Lord, how can I know that I will possess it?"
فَقَالَ لَهُ: «خُذْ لِي عِجْلَةً ثُلَاثِيَّةً، وَعَنْزَةً ثُلَاثِيَّةً، وَكَبْشًا ثُلَاثِيًّا، وَيَمَامَةً وَحَمَامَةً». ٩ 9
And he said to him, "Bring me a heifer three years old, a female goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon."
فَأَخَذَ هَذِهِ كُلَّهَا وَشَقَّهَا مِنَ ٱلْوَسَطِ، وَجَعَلَ شِقَّ كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ مُقَابِلَ صَاحِبِهِ. وَأَمَّا ٱلطَّيْرُ فَلَمْ يَشُقَّهُ. ١٠ 10
He brought him all of these, and divided them in the middle, and placed each half opposite the other; but he did not divide the birds.
فَنَزَلَتِ ٱلْجَوَارِحُ عَلَى ٱلْجُثَثِ، وَكَانَ أَبْرَامُ يَزْجُرُهَا. ١١ 11
And the birds of prey came down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away.
وَلَمَّا صَارَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ إِلَى ٱلْمَغِيبِ، وَقَعَ عَلَى أَبْرَامَ سُبَاتٌ، وَإِذَا رُعْبَةٌ مُظْلِمَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ وَاقِعَةٌ عَلَيْهِ. ١٢ 12
When the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell on Abram. And look, a terror of great darkness fell on him.
فَقَالَ لِأَبْرَامَ: «ٱعْلَمْ يَقِينًا أَنَّ نَسْلَكَ سَيَكُونُ غَرِيبًا فِي أَرْضٍ لَيْسَتْ لَهُمْ، وَيُسْتَعْبَدُونَ لَهُمْ. فَيُذِلُّونَهُمْ أَرْبَعَ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ. ١٣ 13
And he said to Abram, "Know for certain that your descendants will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs; and they will be enslaved there. And they will oppress them four hundred years.
ثُمَّ ٱلْأُمَّةُ ٱلَّتِي يُسْتَعْبَدُونَ لَهَا أَنَا أَدِينُهَا، وَبَعْدَ ذَلِكَ يَخْرُجُونَ بِأَمْلَاكٍ جَزِيلَةٍ. ١٤ 14
But I will also judge that nation whom they will serve. And afterward they will come out with many possessions.
وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ فَتَمْضِي إِلَى آبَائِكَ بِسَلَامٍ وَتُدْفَنُ بِشَيْبَةٍ صَالِحَةٍ. ١٥ 15
But you will go to your fathers in peace. You will be buried in a good old age.
وَفِي ٱلْجِيلِ ٱلرَّابِعِ يَرْجِعُونَ إِلَى هَهُنَا، لِأَنَّ ذَنْبَ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ لَيْسَ إِلَى ٱلْآنَ كَامِلًا». ١٦ 16
In the fourth generation they will come here again, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete."
ثُمَّ غَابَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ فَصَارَتِ ٱلْعَتَمَةُ، وَإِذَا تَنُّورُ دُخَانٍ وَمِصْبَاحُ نَارٍ يَجُوزُ بَيْنَ تِلْكَ ٱلْقِطَعِ. ١٧ 17
It came to pass that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, look, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch passed between these pieces.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ قَطَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَ أَبْرَامَ مِيثَاقًا قَائِلًا: «لِنَسْلِكَ أُعْطِي هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ، مِنْ نَهْرِ مِصْرَ إِلَى ٱلنَّهْرِ ٱلْكَبِيرِ، نَهْرِ ٱلْفُرَاتِ. ١٨ 18
On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, "To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Perath:
ٱلْقِينِيِّينَ وَٱلْقَنِزِّيِّينَ وَٱلْقَدْمُونِيِّينَ ١٩ 19
the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites,
وَٱلْحِثِّيِّينَ وَٱلْفَرِزِّيِّينَ وَٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ ٢٠ 20
the Hethites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim,
وَٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ وَٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ وَٱلْجِرْجَاشِيِّينَ وَٱلْيَبُوسِيِّينَ». ٢١ 21
the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Hivites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."
